, one thing romney is likely to bring up tonight. a gaffe by vice president joe biden, where he said the middle class has been buried for the last four years. >> reporter: that's right. vice president biden tried to clean up those remarks later in the day, saying he was referring to the middle-class buried by tax policies put in by republicans. ones that romney and ryan want to go back to. but criticism of what's happened to the middle-class over the last four years is one that ryan and romney jumped on. >> matthew dowd, what is a win for each candidate tonight? >> mitt romney has to show up and be confident, compassionate and connect with the audience. but really, he has to put the president on the defensive. he needs to turn this race into a referendum on the president. >> and the president? >> i think the president's all about his mannerisms and his style at this point. i think he can't come across as irritable. he can't come across as impatient. he has to act that he wants to be there, maybe with a lot of smyt smiles. he can't come off out of touch. >> do you think the moderator,
